FREE! Faux Fur Infinity Scarf Sewing Tutorial by Team NZP
Stitch a warm and snuggly winter scarf with our FREE! Faux Fur Infinity Scarf Sewing Tutorial by Team NZP. If you’re in a cold climate, like the NZP Team in Wisconsin, you’re already familiar with “bundling up before heading out”. Take on winter in style with our Infinity Scarf! Yes, you can make a fabulous infinity scarf from faux fur!
Deanna, from Team NZP, made this Faux Fur Infinity Scarf with 2/3 yd. faux fur. She’s also successfully stitched our infinity scarf from 1/2 yd. faux fur – cutting a faux fur fabric rectangle measuring 18″ x 40″.
- 2/3 yd. Faux Fur Fabric
- Clover’s Pen Style Chaco Liner
- 6-3/4″ Bordeaux Ultimate Scissors
- 5-in-1 Sliding Gauge
- Schmetz 90/14 Stretch Needle
- Flower Head Pins
- Hand Sewing Needles
- Measure and cut a faux fur rectangle measuring 24″ x 40″.
- On fabric wrong side, mark cutting lines with Clover’s Chaco Liner.
- Using a 6-3/4″ Bordeaux Ultimate Scissors cut along marked lines, cutting only the fabric backing—not the fur.
Cut on marked lines with the tip of the scissors, cutting only the backing, not the fur. Cutting faux fur in the traditional manner leaves you with a complete mess of fur! If you happen to cut the fur, simply use a vacuum to help with the clean up!
Faux Fur Scarf Sewing Tips
- Using a 5-in-1 Sliding Gauge and Clover’s Chaco Liner, measure and mark a 4″–6″ distance along one long fabric edge. Mark the 4″–6″ distance at about 6-8″ from one end. This area will later remain unstitched.
- Place faux fur right sides together, matching long 40″ edges. Pin.
- Using a Schmetz 90/14 Stretch Needle and 1/4″ seam allowance, stitch the long 40″ seam, backstitching on each side of the 4″-6″ opening.
- Stitching the long 40″ seam, creates a faux fur fabric tube.
- Using Clover’s Chaco Liner, place a mark on fabric wrong side – marking the fold line at one short end. Repeat marking the fold line at opposite short end.
- Using a 6-3/4″ Bordeaux Ultimate Scissors, make a small 1/4″ snip/clip at each marked line.
- Through the seam opening, turn the long tube end right side out.
- Give the scarf a half-twist while folding the tube onto itself, matching right sides of the short ends.
- Align opposing seams and snips at the end to maintain the twist. Pin seam with long Flower Head Pins.
- Sew scarf ends together, using 1/” Seam.
- Turn the faux fur scarf – right side out – through the opening.
- Stitch seam opening closed with a hand sewing needle and thread and optional thimbles.
- Presto—a fabulous Faux Fur Infinity Scarf!
